Select a sketch from another studio?

I'm trying to select a sketch from another studio. I can get close, but I'm missing a few steps. What is a good way to do this?

Also, if there is a way to select a mate connector from another studio, that would be helpful too.

Here is the precondition:
annotation { "Name" : "Profile to sweep" }
            definition.otherStudioProfile is PartStudioData;
 When I debug the selection here are the results:
debug: PartStudioData : { "buildFunction" : <function 12> , "configuration" : {} , "partQuery" : Query : { "queryType" : QueryType : "UNION" , "subqueries" : [ Query : { "entityType" : EntityType : "BODY" , "featureId" : Id : [ "FzKsf89ZtRsirEg_0" ] , "queryType" : QueryType : "CREATED_BY" } ] } }

    Instantiator can take PartStudioData as an argument directly. You can also optionally filter the partQuery to remove unnecessary information, if you wish - for more information, see this part of the documentation. There isn't any way to bring in mate connectors directly, but you can bring them in by importing the body they're attached to. You could also try doing shenanigans with evBox3d to determine the center of imported profiles and orient things appropriately that way too.
